civilizations. ancient egypt. as early as the 18th century, scholars came here to marvel at and study the great relics of the ancient sun kings. laboring among the pyramids and temples of this old-world civilization, early archaeologists speculated that complex civilizations were created in the near east to spread far and wide. they thought the greek city states, the roman empire, and all the civilizations that followed were the inheritors of a single act of creation. but discoveries in the new world would provide a stunning challenge to this myopic vision of human history. in 1839, in the jungles of mesoamerica, explorers john lloyd stephens and frederick catherwood encountered the realms of the ancient maya. europeans were amazed by catherwood's written descriptions of ancient maya cities. architecture, sculpture and painting -- all the arts that embellish life had flourished in this overgrown forest. who built this city ? in the ruined cities of egypt, the stranger knows the story of the people whose vestiges are around him. america, say the historians, was peopled by savages. but savages ne
